The Project is grateful to Ronald Levine for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner letter, which is part of the Ronald Levine Collection. Schreiner appears to have known Captain Bourne during 1912 and he is mentioned in a 29 March 1912 letter to Isie Smuts (Smuts A1/194/10/52); thus the dating of this letter and also the place it is likely to have been written from.
1Dear Captain Bourne,
3Thankyou for your letter. I was surprised to hear that the gov= were
4going to invite women, & not at all to hear they were not!
6I was delighted to meet your wife, she so delightfully direct & full
7of life. I hope I shall some day see more of her.
9Yours very sincerely
10Olive Schreiner
